getting to know me

1. What is in the back seat of your car right now?
we've actually done a rather good job of keeping this one tidy, all that's back there is a Dallas Mapsco and an empty water bottle (that was previously full, not sure how the water escaped)

2. When was the last time you threw up?
quite a long time ago, I don't vomit easily

3. What's your favorite curse word?

4. Name 3 people who made you smile today?
haven't really seen anyone I know today, so it was mostly just polite smiles in passing

5. What were you doing at 8 am this morning?
sleeping, amazingly, as that's when Alex's alarm goes off and it usually wakes me up

6. What were you doing 30 minutes ago?
probably switching the laundry (I have nothing else at all to do today, so I've decided to tackle one of the bigger domestic issues)

7. Favorite board game?
aww I love them all, but no one will ever play with me...I kick some major ass at Balderdash though

doesn't really appeal to me

9. What is the last thing you said aloud?
"Fuck!" (after stubbing my toe)

11. What was the last thing you had to drink?
water, always water

12. What are you wearing right now?
welp, I'm home and it's warm outside, so disrobing began almost immediately upon entry...a t-shirt and undies

the cherry lifesaver currently in my mouth (I have a cold, and these are tastier than most cough drops)

14. Have you bought any new clothing items this week?
no, sadly, Alex said our allowance will be slashed in half next month due to being poor and I've already borrowed quite a bit from May, so I'm being very picky about what I spend my money on

I scuttled towards the elevator today before it closed

16. What's the last sporting event you watched?
I think there was some bowling on "Dexter"...otherwise, nothing

prolly my older sister Wendy

when I was little we used to camp in a bus my dad gutted and made into a camper, but nowadays I'm a little too fond of air conditioning and no bugs to get very excited about it

21. Do you use smiley faces on the computer a lot?
I like the basic :) one, don't go for the fancy ones

32. Ever ride on a roller coaster?
last time I did I puked (the first time that had ever happened), sadly, so it's kind of turned me off

sapphire, which I'm not a big fan of, though my engagement ring has white sapphires in it (as well as amethysts)

if I'm alone, always the drive through, and it depends on the food if I'm with someone else

it's usually whatever color of Old Navy flip flops I want to wear, but the most comfortable ones are the ugly solid black K-Swiss ones I bought for work

live a hop, skip, and a jump from the original Six Flags Over Texas, so yes, several times

60. How did you get one of your scars?
I was cleaning my room in high school and my mom started calling my name all urgently from the living room, so I jumped up and ran for the door, slipped on a magazine, and sliced open the front side of my ankle on the corner of an open drawer...her urgency: "Look, it's that girl from Buffy on TV!" Thanks, mom.
